Kuramathi Island Resort

Reviewed June 28, 2014

We found our water villa, 242, to be very private and so beautiful I actually felt quite emotional when first shown around.

I'm sure all the accommodation is of a very high standard but for us the jacuzzi water villa felt extremely luxurious & indulgent. From the beautiful deck area where we spent most of our time sunning ourselves to the wonderful cool of our air conditioned room a step away & outdoor access to the shower for a quick cool down - heavenly.

I've never been to the Maldives before so ive nothing to compare this island to but as far as I'm concerned kuramathi is everything & more than I ever wished for & although we never visit any one place twice this resort is somewhere I would happily return to at the drop of a hat.

We mostly only ate breakfast in our allocated restaurant the Malafaiy, there was a great variety of food on offer enough I'm sure to please the pickiest of eaters & the waiters were so friendly & helpful. We weren't usually ready for more food until around 3ish, after the Malafaiy had finished service but this wasn't a problem as we had some lovely salads, pizzas etc @ the island coffee shop which serves all day.

As we were a la carte all inclusive we found that by eating lunch later we chose the 9 pm sitting for our evening meal @ the restaurant of our choice which seemed to be a less popular time for the majority & had no problems getting into our chosen restaurant.

We loved the size of kuramathi, the great varied choice of restaurants & bars & the fact that it never seemed busy. We enjoyed walking & exploring the island which we did a lot of as we were constantly getting lost.

Not being much good in the water I thoroughly enjoyed spying all the different species of fish swimming around our decking, it would of been nice to have a chart in our room listing the fish so i could tick off the ones I saw - sorry that sounds a bit sad but I love the simple things in life!

A fabulous island that I dream of returning to one day.

Just returned from this paradise island after celebrating our silver anniversary in June. From start to finish this was our best ever vacation.
I would advise going for the select all inclusive when booking which gives access to all the a la carte restaurants on the island. We tried them all and would struggle to pick a favourite......each one was brilliant in a different way.
The island itself is gorgeous and credit must go to the staff for maintaining it to such a high standard. There is so much to see and do if you want or you can just sit back and relax......although there are nearly 300 rooms you never feel crowded.
We chose a water villa with Jacuzzi which was perfect with the view out to the Indian ocean. The staff were all friendly and could not be more helpful.
This will always be a holiday to remember..

Room Tip: Water villas with Jacuzzi have privacy and fantastic view. They are also centrally located which is...

During our wedding planning i decided i wanted to book our honeymoon and keep it a secret until our wedding day. After 10 months of telling the mrs we were going to Bognor she was amazed when i told her where we were going. The pressure was on and Kuramathi didn't disappoint us.

We had a beach villa 25 located about 30 yards from a stunning tree lined beach with clear blue water. Our room was spotless and cleaned twice a day and clean towels. The Island is fairly big so a shuttle cart is available to take you around the island but just walking around is better to take in all the views.

We were allocated to the Haruge restaurant where we were given a table for our stay the food was really good plenty to choose from with hot and cold food. The waiters were also very friendly and chatty our waiter Ali always knew the world cup scores and gave me updates every morning.

A few tips if you go.

Go see the Stingray feeding that happens every night at 18:30 the man is crazy

Snorkelling there is plenty of places to do this an is a must. Amazing fishes and sharks and if your lucky you will see a sea turtle.

Sunset at the top of the island is amazing to watch great for photos

Don't bother packing shoes you don't need them.

The spa is well worth a trip too as well its a bit expensive but the rooms overlooking the sea is stunning.

The only thing we found annoying was when you buy stuff from the shop you have to a service charge of 8% on top of 10% tax we were never told about this charge but it does add up by the end of your trip.

I would highly recommend Kuramathi i would go back tomorrow if i could.

We stayed at this wonderful property for 5 nights, in March 2013 to celebrate our honeymoon.
As soon as we stepped down from ferry on the jetty we were greeted by very warm staff. They took us to the reception where we were welcomed with wet towels and welcome drink. The reception is surrounded with greenery and has beautiful furniture. The staff was very efficient, they hardly took any time to check us in. A golf cart took us to our water villa and we were pleased to see that our luggage had reached even before us. The room was specially decorated with tropical flowers. And there was a complimentary fruit tray.
We had opted for full board. The breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets used to be sumptuous. All the three restaurants Haruge, Malaafaiy and Farivalhu are tastefully done. The bars offer superb cocktails. My favorite were fung bar and the Laguna bar. Fung bar and sand bar merge into each other and are the liveliest as they are near the reception. Laguna is the quietest and at the end of the island but was close to our water villa. There is a sting ray feeding show near Laguna jetty in the evening.
The spa is situated at the middle of the island and is surrounded by thick foliage. U have to book at least 3 hours in advance. It reminds u of Balinese architecture with wooden ceilings and beautiful wooden furniture. They give u green tea or ginger water and ginger candy while u're waiting for ur masseuse . We went for the couples' spa and were so happy with it that again booked it but this time at the water pavilion massage room. It was raining that day and setting seemed perfectly romantic. The plunge pool at the spa has a jacuzzi and was decorated with flowers. We simply loved it.
We missed the dhoni sunset cruise cos I took a lot of time at the spa. But the cruise came back in 10 mins because it had started to rain, so we didn't miss much :D Book it as soon as u land at the resort.
My husband even went for snorkelling. Gear is available at the shop near reception. Be careful with it, if u break it they'll charge u.
Our stay was short but I lived my dream of a Maldivian honeymoon. It was thoroughly relaxing after a hectic indian wedding. I just can't wait to visit kuramathi again.

*kuramathi lounge at the seaplane terminal is awesome. U can nibble on yum snacks and soft drinks while u wait for the plane.

Hi Recently stayed at Kuramarthi. Is a fantastic resort. Rooms/food/island/staff all 1st class excellent!

Just wanted to add one thing which doesnt seem to be mentioned and was a bit of a fly in the ointment for us. There is an adjacent island that has a big telecommunications tower on it which can be quite clearly seen from many parts of the island. So if you want that real total natural beauty idyll be aware of that.

But the island itself really is paradise and couldn't fault anything else.

I've just arrived home after an amazing 9 nights staying on this island. Its better than we could ever have imagined.
Every time we were in Fung bar we were always served with a smile from Abdulla and Shathir and all the other staff.
The restaurant Haruge, the food was lovely, plenty of choice an was so full after it served by Mohammed.
All the staff were very friendly and helped us any time we needed help. we stayed in villa 27.
rooms were spotless. cleaned twice a day, fresh towels, was even giving a tin of mozi spray for night time after we got bit few times

We will definitely be planning our next Maldives holidays back in Kuramathi for 2 years time, Unfortunately
we cant go next year as were are getting married,
Would definitely recommend to any one to stay here.

Went for honeymoon and thought this place was fantastic. It is larger than the other islands but this made it better as there are more restaurants to choose from. Although the island is big you still feel like your the only ones there. Would recommend visiting here and can't wait till we go back. All the restaurants were excellent and the staff were only too willing to help. Ideal location for couples - we stayed on the water villas but all accommodations looked great!
